IPSWICH, Mass. — May 10, 2016 — E-books from the Taylor & Francis e-books platform are now available through the GOBI acquisition platform from YBP Library Services (YBP). This helps to simplify the complex process of discovery, acquisition model and content management that libraries have to manage when purchasing books.
As a result of the partnership, libraries can efficiently and conveniently use GOBI to select more than 50,000 e-book titles from Routledge, an imprint of Taylor & Francis and the world's leading academic publisher in the Humanities and Social Science. Like all titles that are available from the Taylor & Francis e-books platform, the Routledge e-book titles are available DRM-free.
GOBI provides access to more than 13 million titles, including more than one million e-books from leading publishers and aggregators, all in one place. GOBI users benefit from duplication control across all formats, full-text reviews and refined selection lists, real-time management reports and more. With the addition of Routledge e-book titles, nearly every major publisher platform is now available in GOBI and can be fully integrated with each other and YBP services. Titles from Routledge, Oxford and its UPSO partners, Cambridge, SAGE Knowledge, De Gruyter and its partners, Project Muse and JSTOR can now be filtered through a single point of delivery and service.
Senior Vice President Mark Kendall says that through GOBI's sophisticated search and discovery functionality, e-books related to the Humanities and Social Science have never been so easy to manage. "YBP is committed to supporting libraries and the needs of the scholars, instructors and professional communities that use Routledge e-books while employing workflows that save time and money."
T&F's US & Canada Library Sales Director Evelyn Elias says, "We are pleased to offer more than 50,000 Routledge e-books—including titles from imprints such as Focal Press, Ashgate and Psychology Press—on YBP's popular GOBI platform, which is an important step toward streamlining the ordering process and improving workflows for our library customers."
